once along time ago, i lent out my friend my car without a bumper but instead i had installed a 2x8x4ft pressure treated wood and he got a ticket in down town toronto. all he had to do showed up in court and told the judge that it wasn't his car and got off instantly about 30 sec. on the stand. and then i got a letter in the mail from ministry transportation to take my car to their safety inspection shop, so i called them up and told them that i already sold my car as is and they erase it off their log. and that was the end of that. then i put the real replacement bumper back on and the car was back on the road again.
